Julius is eight years old and lives in a children's home. He loves to hear the storyteller's story about how Santa brought Julius to the children's home on a Christmas Eve for around eight years ago. The older boys in the orphanage think Julius is childish and they give him grief whenever they get together. When he is confronted with the fact that Santa Claus may just be the headmaster of the orphanage dressing up, Julius loses not only his belief in Santa - also his belief in himself. But something strange happens, and Julius suddenly ends up in a magical winter parallel world with Christmas bells, marzipangrises, christmas angels and tomtenissar. Santa is gone, Christmas is in danger.
